Pros: For day-to-day donation data entry, this program is easy to use, has an uncluttered interface, and a responsive and friendly customer service department.

Cons: The program was upgraded a couple of years ago and since then, I've found it a little more difficult to manipulate. Reports are harder for me to run, and I feel like a lot of the bells and whistles that were added aren't features that we can easily take advantage of. I also wish it hadn't moved to the cloud, because it's one more thing I can't access when we lose internet connectivity.

Overall: Donation Director has been a good, economical choice for our small nonprofit office. While I feel like a written or online manual for the program would greatly increase my productivity and skill, I do appreciate that Cascade Data Solutions has competent, patient and knowledgeable when I have something I can't figure out on my own.

Recommendations to other buyers: Donation Director is a good program for smaller nonprofits who want to save on their software budget. And savvier users might be able to get more out of it than I can.
